Richmond author Alaric Cabiling has published Insanity By Increments, his first published work since the release of 2009's The Darkest Day and 2013's Gray Rigorism. In Insanity By Increments, Cabiling reveals characters at their most vulnerable states, in subtle moments that alter each character's destiny forever.
Two brothers test fate. A father mourns the loss of his child. An old abandoned home is the scene of a final journey into the past. A man revisits the scene of a one-night stand. Each story is unforgiving in its attempt at revealing the transcendental from the mundane.
Few books feature the psychological insight and gripping attention to detail that Insanity By Increments exhibits. The lyrical prose flows smoothly and the transitions between time stamps are cinematic. Few books dwelling on the darker side of the human condition present subtle tragedies with such startling clarity, haunting the reader well after the collection has been read.
